Kevin James Net Worth 2017

With a new hit show called ‘Kevin Can Wait’, Hollywood moneymaker Kevin James is back. Even though most of his movies are low budget, he is one of the best investments a studio can make given the percentage return on investment for his movies.

Kevin James: Cash Cow

In the last few years, Kevin James has made several high grossing movies. Paul Blart: Mall Cop, for example, made almost $220 million on a budget of nearly nothing. And in 2015, Paul Blart 2 was Sony’s highest grossing movie. Pixels also did well.

Now, Kevin James has a new show, ‘Kevin Can Wait’, which since premiering on CBS a few weeks ago, has been the highest rated new comedy of the year.

James was making over $500,000 per episode toward the end of his previous hit show, King of Queens, and star salaries have increased dramatically since then, so it wouldn’t be surprising if James is making nearly $1 milllion per episode (although we expect it’s closer to $500,000 since this is a new show).

Forbes in 2012 listed James as number 10 on their list of “Best Actors for the Buck.” According to their analysis, for every $1 paid, James returns over $22. James’ movies often are very cheap to make but do very well at the box office, making him a very good investment for studios.

According to Variety, in 2012, Kevin and his wife bought a home in Florida for $18 million. In the same article, they note that just four of James’ movies brought in a total of $800 million.

So what is Kevin James’ net worth in 2017?

So with the royalties from the films and King of Queens we would estimate James’ net worth at a little under $100 million. Add to that his salary from ‘Kevin Can Wait’ and we estimate his salary to be between $100 and $120 million.

Now, that’s a lot of dough for a mall cop!

The Most Expensive Trucks/SUVs Ever

Got tons of money but don’t want to buy a whimpy Porsche or Bentley? Well, we’ve got the answer for you. Here are the most expensive luxury trucks ever made.

Most Expensive Trucks Ever: International CXT

Source Wikipedia: Silosarg

Years: 2004-2008
Price: $150,000+

The International CXT was built from 2004 to 2008, after which it was discontinued. The truck was about $150,000 all-in, and it was built on a real commercial truck chassis.

The truck was offered in two other flavors, the RXT and the CXT. Each had top of the line leather, all of the latest electronics, including a Playstation, and could drive almost anywhere. The CXT had a towing capacity of 20 tons, so no matter how big your yacht was, it could handle it.

Some of the wealthy owners included Jay Leno and Ashton Kutcher.

Most Expensive Trucks Ever: Lamborghini LM002

Source: Wikipedia

Years: 1986-1993
Price: $130,000

The Lamborghini LM002 is now mostly a footnote in history, but at the time it was created, it cost over $130,000. In today’s money, that’s over $280,000. The truck/SUV wasn’t particularly comfortable or classy, but it was a Lamborghini, and with the Lamborghini name came the Lamborghini reputation for (un)reliability. It also was a regular on “worst vehicles ever” lists.

Some of the wealthy owners included Saddam Hussein’s son and other Middle Eastern royalty.

Most Expensive Trucks Ever: Mercedes G63 6×6

Source: Wikipedia/Milhouse35

Years: 2013-2015
Price: $1M+

If you have a million dollars to spend, and nothing in particular to do, you can buy one of these. The G63 6×6 is a Mercedes G-wagon (which is already over $100k) with another axle and wheel. Why? Because.

The 6×6 is no longer available new, but you can buy a used one (expect to pay more than the MSRP, however). Some of the features included central tire inflation, so that the rich Middle Eastern Sheikhs could go from the roads to the dessert quickly, and there was even a Brabus version.

The truck appeared in movies like Jurassic Park, but you probably best recognize it from Dan Bilzerian’s Instagram.

The Top 5 Most Expensive and Luxurious Ways to Fly

If you’re mega-rich, you can travel anywhere, in almost any way you like. If a millionaire wants to fly somewhere, you have countless options, from coach to first class and beyond.

Today’s first class means things like getting a private chauffeur, an apartment in the sky, and even a butler.

So let’s count down the most expensive and luxurious ways to fly.

#5) Cathay Pacific First Class

On Hong Kong-based airline Cathy Pacific, first class means being treated like royalty. From the moment you arrive at the airport, you get the top of the line champagnes and even caviar.

Tired? You can reserve a private cabana like the one below where you can sleep and take a bath in.

On board the plane, you’ve got a huge space to relax. Instead of ten seats per row in the back, there are 3 seats per row. The seats are well over 6 feet long, so there are no legroom worries.

And when you want to sleep, every seat can be converted to a bed — with top of the line linens — by the amazing flight attendants.

#4) Singapore Suites

Singapore Airlines takes first class one step further by giving its mega rich passengers private suites, which can be combined to form double beds.

Singapore offers the mega-rich what they call “Singapore Suites”, which are essentially mini private rooms in the air. Each room contains a large seat which converts to a bed, and it’s enclosed on all four sides for privacy.

But what’s most amazing about these Singapore Suites is that if you’re traveling with a companion, two suites can be combined to form a giant double bed.

The flight attendants will ensure your comfort, even spreading rose pedals on the bed for you.

And if you’re hungry, you can order a lobster or a filet mignon anytime for a meal.

#3) Etihad First Apartments

When it comes to over the top travel, the Middle Eastern airlines are king. And UAE based airline Etihad is the top of the top.

Etihad has two different options for the rich. The first is the Ethiad First Apartment.

The First Apartment is a mini suite in the sky. Like the Singapore Suites, there is a bed and two Apartments can be combined into a larger room. But unlike Singapore Suites, each Apartment has a separate bed and couch.

On these flights, you can have your companion “come over” for a meal, with top of the line foods from all over the world.

#2) The Etihad Residence

If you’re mega-rich instead of just rich, the Etihad Apartment may be too small for you.

But not to worry — Etihad still has you covered with their “Residence” suite.

The Residence suite has a separate living room and bedroom, as well as a private luxury bathroom with a shower.


The living room has a giant couch with a large screen TV, and is totally enclosed. The bedroom is also fully enclosed and contains a large double bed. The bathroom contains top-of-the-line fixtures, including a private shower.

But that’s not all. Need something? You can call your private butler. The butler will serve you food, help with travel arrangements, or almost anything else.

#1) Private

But for some mega-rich, flying commercial just won’t do. For those people there’s always flying private.

Private planes have everything above, plus much more.

Private flights can cost up to several hundred thousand dollars per hour and can take you nearly anywhere nowadays.

If you want to be part of the mega-rich club, you have to have one of these.


“90 Day Fiance” Jorge’s Net Worth

How much is Jorge from “90 Day Fiance” worth? He seems super rich, with his cars and the expensive presents he buys his fiance Anfisa. But is he?

“90 Day Fiance” Jorge’s Net Worth

It seems that Jorge has spent on many major items. On “90 Day Fiance” he claims to have bought an Audi R8, a $163,000 car that looks like this:


According to Celebrity Cars, that puts him in an elite group including Simon Cowell, Hugh Grant, and Reggie Bush.

He also looks into buying a wedding dress that costs $45,000, and accessories that are $10,000+.

And he says he spent $75,000 on Anfisa so far.

He claims to earn “six-figures” from his medical marijuana business, but this is a broad range, which as a household income could put him anywhere in the range between somewhere in the middle, all the way to the top 1%.

So What is Jorge Worth?

According to Empty Lighthouse Magazine, there are some questions.

  • Until he picked up Anfisa he drove around in a late model Japanese sedan, not a fancy car — when he did get the R8 it had no license plates.
  • Empty Lighthouse Magazine says: “First, at least to date on the show, he has never spent a large amount of money on Anfisa, and even though he goes to expensive stores, he doesn’t end up spending.”
  • Empty Lighthouse Magazine estimates that his apartment cost him at most $3000/month.
  • The hotel he stayed at on the show costs at most approximately $200/night. Not exactly the Ritz-Carlton.

None of these things match with his spending $163,000 on a car or $45,000 on a dress. In the end, they estimate that his real income to be around $100,000. Given that and the spending he has done, we would guess that his total net worth is somewhere around $200,000-$250,000.

2016 Most Expensive TV Shows Break Records

The fall 2016 season is going to be a banner year for TV.

Let me rephrase that: the fall 2016 season had better be a banner year for TV, given how much the shows are costing to make. From new seasons of current shows, to premieres of new shows, this season is breaking records for some of the most expensive TV shows ever made.


Not too long ago, the final seasons of Friends made huge headlines for hitting the $10 million per episode mark, because the stars demanded such high salaries. But now, dozens of HBO, Netflix, Showtime, and Amazon shows that are closing in on that.

So without further ado, here are the most expensive TV shows of 2016, and their cost related to the most expensive shows in history.

#5) Netflix Marco Polo (current) and HBO Rome (2005-2007) – $9 million per episode (tie)

Marco Polo and Rome both cost about $9 million per episode, although with inflation, Rome was slightly more expensive.

Both shows required huge location budgets and expensive large scenes (as well as huge battle scenes for Rome), which explained the high cost.

#4) Game of Thrones (current) – $10 million per episode

Game of Thrones started off cheap — at least in comparison to the other shows on this list, at $6 million per episode. But the latest season cost a whopping $10 million, according to Forbes. Still, in comparison, it was a good value.

It’s obvious what makes this show expensive: the battles — but you may be surprised to know how expensive some of the battles were. The Battle of Blackwater alone cost $8 million. And newer battles have reportedly passed the $10 million mark.

#3) NBC Friends (1994-2004) – $10 million per episode (tie, sort of)

At $10 million per episode toward the end of the series, Friends was the most expensive show of its kind, and the number 3 most expensive show of all time.

The cost came down to salary demands of the cast, who all wanted $1 million-plus for each episode. NBC, desperate to keep one of their highest rated shows in history, met their demands.

Adjusted for cost, in today’s dollars the show would be closer to $13 million.

#2) Netflix Sense8 (current) – $12 million per episode (approx)

There’s no exact number for the budget of this show, but estimates range from $100 million to $200 million total. Given that the show has 12 episodes, we estimated the per-episode cost to be around $12 million.

Sense8 is definitely the most expensive show of the 2016 season, and second most expensive in history (especially when you account for inflation, the following show beats it by a landslide).

Why is it so expensive? The show is shot on-location all over the world, and moving the crew is expensive. Episodes of the show have required thousands of extras, and filming has required helicopters and hundreds of cars. Add to that the cost of special effects and a highly-paid production staff, and the price starts to make sense.

#1) NBC ER (1994-2009) – $13 million per episode

Somewhat surprisingly, nobody has yet officially broken the record that ER set many years ago for most expensive TV show. According to The Baltimore Sun, back in 1998, NBC set the record by spending $13 million per episode for the show. That’s nearly $20 million per episode in today’s dollars.

What did NBC get for all of that? Not much. The cost was mostly due to the salaries of the biggest stars — like George Clooney. NBC was concerned that if it lost ER (this around the time Seinfeld ended), its ratings would collapse.

It needn’t have worried, though, because the ratings collapsed anyway, and Clooney soon left.

Bonus: Amazon The Grand Tour (current) – $6+ million per episode

While it doesn’t make it into the top 5 most expensive TV shows of all time, Amazon’s new The Grand Tour is its most expensive show, and could join the top 5 soon.

The show features Top Gear alums Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May, all of whom are getting paid a pretty penny. It also includes the production crew from Top Gear who are also making good money.

But the real expense is filming. Just the opening scene costs $3.2 million because it required 6 jets, 150 cars, 2,000 extras, acrobats, and stilt-walkers. The crew and set are moved all over the world for each episode.

So that’s it, the most expensive TV shows of 2016 really are some of the most expensive shows in history. Will all the money be worth it? Only time will tell.

“But back in 2012, when I was continuing to do that kind of music, people were fed up with it,” The Weeknd told Pitchfork.

“They were like, ‘This is all he can do?’ I owe it to myself to show the world how versatile I can be, because that’s not all I can do. Why can’t I try something that challenges me as an artist?”

So, now to the official business, what exactly is The Weeknd’s Net Worth. Well, taking into consider his past net worths of around $30 million and adding a haul from The Madness World Tour along with album sales from Beauty Behind The Madness, we estimate that The Weeknd’s Net Worth is $35 million.
